Reseña del editor :

If ever a writer turned language to "sweet uses," that writer was Faber, "Friend of the weary heart in search of God." He quite captivated the cold English heart and kindled a beam of enthusiasm that shone far and near. No other author has been translated into different tongues so extensively or in so brief a time. His popularity is world wide. Yet in many homes, especially on this side of the Atlantic, his name has come only to be respected as a stranger, not to be loved as one of the" dear familiars." Unknown is his inimitable art of making hard ways easy, dark ways lightsome; of pouring out upon the shivering world a flood of sunshine, warming it to a glowing love and a reverent joy in beholding the benign serenity, the queenly majesty of truth in its beauty and strength. That the genial influence of this happy writer may be early and deeply felt, "Father Faber" is included in the series of simple and brief studies drawn from Catholic sources, now prepared for the youth of our schools, which, we feel confident, will meet with the hearty approval of all who are engaged in the noble work of training the young mind and forming the heart to virtue. Selections include The Cherwell Water Lily The Syrian Liake The Angels The Shepherds The Calvacade and the East The First Fountains of Devotion to the Blessed Mother Kind Words The Marriage Feast at Cana Loss of Time Science and Grace The Daily Cross God's Triumph in the Repentant This is followed by several pages of quotations, such as: “We justly bear the cross because therein We bear the harvest of our deeds, but nought Was done amiss by Him who bore it first.” “Nothing is worth anything, except In so far as God chooses to have to do with it.” “Kindness has converted more sinners than either zeal, eloquence, or learning.” “The twenty-four hours are the same to everybody except the idle, and to the idle they are thirty-six.”
